Bring Your Kids to Morris Arboretum’s Nature Play in September!


At Morris Arboretum’s Nature Play on Saturday, September 1, 11am-3pm, kids are invited to splash in water and see what floats, or fill-up a teapot for a tea party like the young girl from the Montgomery Korean School, pictured here. Children may also explore the lawn for seeds and pods of all kinds. This outdoor event series of unstructured fun uses what’s available in the outside world; learning to love nature and loving to learn naturally.

Nature Play will be held the 1st Saturday of each month May through October, 11am-3pm, at a different location of the garden each session. Visitors may stop by anytime.  September’s session will take place just beyond the entrance to the Garden Railway.

These events are free with regular garden admission.  For more information,
